Legal Documents from Graeco-Roman Egypt

Vak 2011-2012

Admission requirements

None.

Description

Legal documents from Egypt, stemming from the Graeco-Roman period and mostly written in Greek, are read in translation and are discussed.Based on these often fragmentary sources, various reconstructions of the legal system, showing influences of Egyptian, Greek and Roman law, are described. Students are invited to evaluate the plausibility of these reconstructions, and to propose their own alternatives. These discussions should illustrate the importance of changing socio- economic conditions and different legal traditions in shaping legal systems.
